new Dashut blog - Truth & Consequences (My Times with FM)
 
http://dickdash.tumblr.com/

Richard Dashut announced that he just started a blog "Truth And Consequences - My Times With Fleetwood Mac".

this is his opening post:


Life is both precious & short.

If one is lucky enough, one crosses paths & recognizes as such, a special person in their life called a Mentor.

As luck would have it, for me, I had both a mentor & a best friend all in one.
This potent combination along with an intense passion for creativity, forged my future with Fleetwood Mac.

My mentor’s name was Lindsey Buckingham, & to him I owe damn near everything.

This blog is therefor dedicated to Lindsey Buckingham.

Thank You for enabling & sending me off on what has been an incredible journey.

exactly.

will it be piling on or is it an attempt to counterbalance a lot of the stuff that's been put out there in recent years about LB (ref. Carol Harris, Ken Caillat, even Mick's book)? Calling LB his "mentor" and owing him "everything" certainly seems like it would be the latter.

But it is just so unusual for anyone intimate with the band to blab about anything…. wonder how this will be received by the band or LB. Is he trying to get back in LB's good graces or something??

Curiouser and curiouser..


btw, I love his handle on tumblr: dickdash

oh and Richard, if you see this, please please pleasssse choose an easier to see font color for your page. That pale grey has no contrast to the white background :(

Very interesting.Thanks.Hahahaha .I was thinking about the 1960's and 70's Bob Barker game show as I saw the title of this thread.

bombaysaffires 08-08-2014 04:39 PM

did anyone else notice the cute little graphic in the "Q" of consequences? one of his and LB's fave pastimes...

Richard Dashut on Tumblr
 
So I am actually really excited right now. Richard Dashut (famed Fleetwood Mac producer) has started a tumblr, and is answering fan questions. He is a really nice guy, it seems, and is giving genuinely honest answers. So check it out if you want. I wasn't sure which thread to put this in, but he's answering some questions about Stevie, so idk.

Yeah..To me it sounds like KISS LINDSEY'S ASS OR CONSEQUENCES. :laugh::laugh:

It's simply amazing. Last night I asked him about L&O and why he was not a part of the Go Insane recordings. Less than ten minutes later I had his answer!! It's great to read what he writes, he lived lot of things with FM and he can talks in first person about what happened there.
We'll see lot of amazing stories. Thanks Richard!!!
Regards,
Mark.

Why is everyone so cynical around here? Richard stared in one of the questions, that he and Lindsey had lost contact for 20 years, but have renewed their friendship a couple of years ago. Just maybe they are really friends, and he wants to set the record straight, without getting paid for it, unlike Carol Ann and Ken. He did say that all he wants is an investment of fans' time, not their money.

I am sure the pictures from the early years (pre-FM) that he might post of Lindsey and Stevie will be lovely to see.

Even the early FM pictures, before Rumours, will be nice to view, before they became superstars.

I like the way he's handling all the questions and the pictures are just amazing. I couldn't be happier about this.

I asked him what his favorite and least favorite album to work on was. He answered me pretty quickly. His favorite to work on was Tango. He said his least favorite was Rumours. I found his answer very surprising.

It seems that his answer was based mostly on his personal experiences and relationships in the studio. He and Lindsey developed a strong bond during the recording of Tango in the Night.

I wish he could have answered more questions about the Buckingham Nicks, and their set lists. He really didn't addressed them.

Richard says that he still smokes pot
